Q-Cells SE says it is providing approximately 200,000 of its Q.SMART copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film solar modules to Germany-based GP Joule.
GP Joule has constructed what the companies claim is the world's largest solar power plant using CIGS thin-film technology, which was constructed in eight-and-a-half weeks. The 20.8 MW project was developed by Stuttgart, Germany-based project developer Martin Bucher.
Q-Cells also provided technical support during the installation phase. The project's investor is Aquila Capital. The companies have not released financial information on the installation.
The plant was installed in Wiefelstede, Germany, in an area that had formerly served as a military airbase.
